9 Best Pixar Spots at the Disneyland Resort

By Whit Honea |

Tow Mater If you have a heart and access to a movie theater/television set, then chances are you love the movies made by Pixar. You’re only human. As an added bonus, if you’re a human that is planning a family vacation at the Disneyland Resort (Disneyland and Disney California Adventure parks, plus the Downtown Disney entertainment area) in Anaheim, CA, then you can combine your love of Pixar with the love you have for said family. That’s a classic win-win, people.

The Disneyland Resort mixes a lot of Pixar magic with the traditional mouse variety, and the results are amazing fun for the whole family. You might say it is Incredibles — but be prepared for weird looks from those that can’t comprehend your level of comedic genius. Don’t worry, I get you.

You can also be prepared by using the Mobile Magic app from Disney Parks and Verizon. The Mobile Magic app will help you find your favorite characters for photo and autograph opportunities as well as updates on wait time for the various rides and shows on your itinerary. It’s like your own personal piece of magic — the kind that saves time.

And on that note, here are my favorite Pixar-inspired spots for great family fun on your Disneyland Resort vacation:

    Astro Blasters is the bane of every parents’ existence… especially when your son gets a better score every time.

    I know I’m the adult and all, but I can’t help but drag my kids into the Bug’s Life video.
